Cybele Young is a Canadian artist who uses delicate Japanese papers to recreate everyday objects such as headphones, guitars and deck chairs. Drawing inspiration from seemingly insignificant day-to-day experiences, Young manages to make ordinary objects come alive through her paper sculptures.

Young produces her miniature sculptures from fine Japanese papers. The sculptures are designed to serve as replicas of real life objects and other abstract shapes. Before the sculptures are put on display, Young often uses them in stop-motion films that make the sculptures truly come alive. Her goal is to turn everyday objects and moments into unexpected outcomes.

While other artists may opt for pen and paper, Young manages to make beautiful artwork out of delicate sheets of paper.
